Doctor

A:   Hi,
Thanks for the query.
I understand your concern.
The possible causes of your pain and discharge are secondary infection of the abdominal wounds and vault or primary infection acquired after surgery.
By examination and investigations like ultrasound, vaginal swab culture and sensitivity the possible cause of the problem can be identified.
So, please consult your doctor, get examined and take treatment accordingly.
Take care.
